Education Group Visits

to the Watercress Line


Acylic Ropley Station

An Education Visit to the Mid Hants Railway, The Watercress Line, offers the opportunity for your pupils to learn about the present day operation of our preserved railway and to investigate its past life and times. Your visit can be teamed with the experience of travelling through the Hampshire Countryside behind a restored steam locomotive during our midweek running season.

Autumn Term 2019 - Visits with train travel  are available during September 2019 and then begin again in May 2020. They are only available in term time on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Until the end of summer 2019 we are running trains from Alresford to Medstead as work is being carried out on the far end of the line, as part of a large highway improvement scheme.

Led Visits

Due to the resultant changes in our timetable we are only able to book one led education group per day and are now fully booked for September.

Self Led Visits

Self led visits are still available to book on most September running days. Please email for current availability.
